Damn things just compound don't they? You have as always my best thoughts and hopes that you can get the Docs in gear......not always an easy thing.

How about a defibrillator story?

I was in last week for a device check and cardiologist appointment. I asked the factory tech how much longer on the battery and she said 1 to 2 years. I said great and then she told me something about mine (Boston Scientific-Guidant) that I had never read or heard before. She said when it gets to about 90 days of charge left that if I didn't get it changed, it BEEPS! I gotta' tell ya' that if the damn thing had beeped inside my chest I'd have shit myself and called 9-1-1 ........ in that order.
